I am hoping for some advice. I was a young mom (17 when pregnant) and ended up having three kids by 23. I’ve since pulled myself up by my boot straps and am doing well in my career and have seen good trajectory. The thing is, it’s always nagged at me that I never went to college. I don’t want to go to college in the traditional sense but my new employer offers some tuition reimbursement (if related to the job). I’m in tech, specifically software. What should I look into?
Hill Holliday in Boston laid off a bunch of people and so far, by my count, it's 13 women 3 men. 4 working moms. 1 woman 6 months pregnant. And most of the creative layoffs were women??
What’s it’s like to work at Mother in ny ?
Thoughts on whether or not travel requirements prohibit women from excelling in consulting. I have to rule out entire companies to apply to in fear of obscene travel requirements since I have two young children.
Just ruined Mother's Day weekend with somehow getting on topic of family issues. Congratulations to me! No coming back from this 🍾🍾🍾
As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
I am getting ready to send my 2 year old toddler to a toddler program next week for the first time. Have to fill out a form “bathroom waiver”, which is basically allowing teachers at the school to clean my child after a potty, including genital area. I feel uneasy about this but I know I have to let them… I assume all parents have signed such waiver?

I can’t tell anymore: are all married people miserable? Is it normal to think, ‘I can’t do this anymore’ when we’re alone? How do I reconcile that w/ my love for my child & their relationship?
Bf’s sister is pregnant. Obviously happy for him, but can’t help feel sad that their family will probably not be happy when my time comes. They’re bigots and they hate me. Thinking of breaking up but I’m torn
It's 2018 and I just turned down a job offer for higher pay and title becuase the new company doesn't offer maternity benefits. Fuck America.
I am hoping some people can help me here. My SO is in this horrible pit of depression and they are pushing me away. They have all these colliding events in the last few months: father has Alzheimer’s.
This is my little furball Sheero. He always used to chase me with his Little feat, wagging his little tail all around the house. Whenever I used to be busy on my laptop with work, he just used to sit on my lap and sleep like a peaceful baby. He was such a good puppy. He is now resting with angles up in the heaven and I miss him a lot ❤️.
Parental leave policies for your companies? Doing a comparison and I'll start. Slalom's: 8 weeks for primary caregiver (maternity leave) 1 week for non-primary (paternity leave)

Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this? I know lesbians usually go to sperm bank but we wanted to know “baby daddy” and have him involved as a godparent and when kids ask questions introduce him as a father. Personal life stories and dos and donts welcome. All my friends are straight or gay men so I have this resource and general internet.

Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?
Who thinks they have the worse pay on here? I’ll go first 85k with MBA and 6YOE. Bum bum bummmm
Should I reach back to the recruiter on decision after I started new job? Would that be a red flag or they see i really like their company? I would join that company if everything's equal but had to start on current role since the other company was dragging feet a but on getting resources for the role. They might still be waiting for approvals for the role...should I just wait for them or keep talking? Last time HR did say to check back later.
No word on ACN midyears for second year in a row. Global MD for my practice tried promoting me last Dec, but hands were tied bc of our new promotion policies. Now this. Crazy to consider leaving?
When I started a project at an independent agency, I was told the work load would be around 15 hours, or that was the max. The client loved what I gave them and didn't have any feedback, so my work is pretty much done but I think it took me more like 10 hours. Should I still charge for 15?
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
